The information we collect

We collect certain basic information about you when you visit our website. We recognise the importance both of keeping that information secure and of letting you know what we intend to do with it.

We may amend our policy to reflect changes to our business, website, data protection law or other legislation. We therefore ask you revisit this policy on a regular basis to ensure you are familiar with its terms.

  • when you use the link to our partner areas or online billing platform

In general, we will collect the information we need to provide you with the service to which the form relates. For example, if you subscribe to updates, we will collect your name, title, company name and email address. When you complete an online form for any of our other services, for example, seminars or other events, you will be required to provide other information in addition such as a postal address for an invoice or further information (if applicable). You may book more than one attendee on the seminar. If you book other people onto seminars, please first show them a copy of this privacy policy and make sure they agree to its terms.

Where we ask for more information to help us improve our services, over and above the basic required information, your response is voluntary and you are free not to provide us with more information if you would prefer not to do so.
